Dean of the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics

One of Canada’s most prestigious schools, Lazaridis, develops leaders who can adapt to a world of ever-growing complexity.

Businesses today face challenges such as building more resilience into their supply chain and engaging a remote workforce, says Micheál Kelly, Dean of the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University.

“We’re going to see a lot more disruption in the years to come and companies have to pay attention to the technologies and other organizations that are moving into their space,” says Kelly. “Companies know that they’ll have to improve resilience and build more agility into their operations.

“We’re thinking a lot about the future of business, especially in a post-COVID-19 environment, and how to embed this into the curriculum so students can adapt to a world of complexity.”
